Katie Daniels and Cassidy Price, New York City-based corporate attorneys, meet on a fateful morning following the implosion of Kentucky-transplant Katie's marriage plans. Narrator Allyson Ryan's empathetic performance navigates the women's relationships and sexual experiences as the plot's point of view alternates. Lesbian-identified Cassidy's lower register and somewhat masculine-sounding voice contrast with straight Katie's dulcet voice, suppressed drawl, and feminine appearance. Differences in their lifestyles and backgrounds are emphasized throughout as their relationship evolves from being acquaintances into something more complicated. Cassidy's favorite bar, enlivened through Ryan's energized characterization of friends and regulars, contrasts sharply with Katie's pretentious former social circle. The audio production enhances this contemporary romance between opposites. Ryan further strengthens characters and plot elements with the well-timed delivery of humor and awkward missteps.
